Motor Trend’s First Test reviews provide you with instrumented testing that is unmatched in the industry. Our Road Test Editors perform acceleration tests, which yield a 0-60 mph time, and a quarter mile time, for each vehicle. We also measure the stopping distance from 60 mph. On our Figure-Eight course we measure lap time and average g-forces generated by the vehicle. Maximum g-force is measured on our skidpad, which evaluates the suspension tuning and grip. With these figures we can provide a more accurate picture of a vehicle’s real-world performance.
